Eve McGivern This is all prime dark ambient and drone that, if you like the genres, you really should be checking out. Take a journey through the spiraling environmental ambience of Monocube, the apocalyptic drones of Sonologyst, industrial field sounds of Xerxes the Dark, cold chattering noises of Ashtoreth, dystopian psychedelic transmissions of Silent Chaos, and the apocalyptic ears of vÄäristymä that lend the perfect backdrop of primordial extinction against today's movement toward humanity's extinction. Favorite track: Monocube - Luft.

Jonathan Best dark ambient/drone/psychedelic album of the year-- by a mile. The excellent dark drone opens up psychedelic vistas and works as rock, experimental sounds and drone.This great music blasts open the doors of perception. Best with good headphones and good Mescaline. Favorite track: Sonologyst - system: maze of control.

about

The labyrinth combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but meaningful path. It is a powerful metaphor for life's journey, but it also provides a particularly satisfying neurological experience. Our brains operate differently in a labyrinth, it seems, and therefore, we become different people, even for just a few minutes.
To understand labyrinths, you must first understand that a labyrinth is not a maze. Mazes must be solved, a left brain activity that involves choices and an active mind and logical, sequential, linear thinking. A maze is multicursal, with many paths. If you don't pay attention, you can get lost in one. Not so with a labyrinth. It is unicursal – one way in, one way out. There are no decisions, no choices, no thinking required. The only choice is to enter. To walk one is a right brain activity involving intuition, creativity, and imagination, and it requires a receptive mindset. You must trust the path, surrender to it.

A labyrinth is not a puzzle; it is a mystery. Theologian Diogenes Allen illuminates the difference: "When a problem is solved, it is over and done with. We go on to other problems. But a mystery, once recognized, is something we are never finished with. Instead, we return to it again and again and it unfolds new levels to us. Mysteries, to be known, must be entered into. We do not solve mysteries. The deeper we enter into them, the more illumination we get. Still greater depths are revealed to us the further we go".

Our brains are looping mysteries like labyrinths.
